Some Celtic fans have been left talking by the latest club update that Neil Lennon has provided recently.

Recently, Hoops boss Lennon was talking to BBC Five Live (via Daily Record) and he was asked about potential wage cuts from the club.

Lennon revealed that the club is ‘feeling the hit’ in financial terms. And he agreed that the idea of wage cuts is being talked about and Peter Lawwell will make a decision about that soon enough.

Which club did Larsson join Celtic from?

The Daily Record relayed these comments on Twitter. This got many Celtic fans talking. They like the fact that the club is looking to make wage cuts in the future.

Should Celtic take a wage-cut already?

No, we can wait

No, we can wait

Absolutely, everyone should!

Absolutely, everyone should!

Serie A giants Juventus have had their players agree to take a wage-cut already. The same applies to Barcelona, with Lionel Messi having confirmed that the club’s players are taking a wage-cut of 70 per cent.

Tottenham have also cut 20 per cent wages of the non-playing staff, Daniel Levy has confirmed.

What do we think?

Considering how three renowned clubs have had people take wage-cuts, it is clear that the pandemic has already had a big financial impact on football.

Lennon’s comments are right, in that sense. If the financial impact of the pandemic rages on to Scotland, Celtic would also have to make wage-cuts. Tottenham, Juventus and Barcelona played in the Champions League this season. If clubs like them have to face financial disadvantages, Celtic might have to do so soon.
